Jennifer Wehry – Office Manager
Jennifer Wehry joined Building Trust as Office Manager in 2022. She previously worked as a designer, typesetter, and picture framer, and then she went back to college at age 40 and became a social worker. Her most rewarding, and demanding, job was as a hospice social worker. She was honored to be allowed to be part of a very special, very sacred part of her patients’ lives, and the hospice philosophy is still very special to her heart. She worked in other capacities as a social worker, and knows that she was able to make a difference.
Jenni joined Building Trust knowing it was the perfect blend of her business, retail, and social work experiences – and she is still able to make a difference and personal connections to our clients.
Jenni was born and raised in Kent, Ohio, and has lived in Richland County since 1988. She has been married to Brian for over 40 years and they have 2 daughters, both grown & married. She loves football and the Cleveland Browns, however recent developments severely challenged this devoted fan.
She is happiest when she is making things. She learned to sew when she was 9 and has made several wedding dresses, all types of clothing, furniture slipcovers, and almost everything in between. She also dabbles in calligraphy, jewelry making, and almost anything crafty.
When not at work or crafting, Jenni and her husband love to be outside. They have a goal to hike all of Ohio’s State Parks at least once. She recently took up long bow archery and is learning fly-fishing.
